November 1, 2018—Young Ugandans are missing out on a job placement online platform that started out in Ghana and is now touting its success at helping people find jobs since setting up shop two years ago.
Africa Internship Academy (AIA) is a youth employment accelerator. According to the founders, Emmanuel Leslie Addae and Daniel Amoako Antwi, theirs is a self-sustaining social enterprise that trains higher education students, graduates, and entrepreneurs to gain entrepreneurial and employable skills, assign mentors to and connect its members to employers looking for entry-level talents.
AIA claims it has groomed over 195 fellows over six cohorts and has been able to create a searching platform called www.TalentsInAfrica.com for employers looking for entry level talent in Africa.
The platform is connecting more Africans to job opportunities across Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Senegal, and Cote D’ivoire.
The platform does not only provide you with job opportunities across Africa, it also gives career advice on its blog and coach its applicants on CV and resume writing. Tips on salary and professional work skills are also delivered by email free of charge.
AIA says its mandate is grooming young talents as change agents to transform Africa; offering unique opportunities for future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from all over Africa to be nurtured professionally, network extensively, experience workplace culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the heavy weights in their chosen industries have been tremendously realized.
